Mentor X contestant and team leader for Yes To Smile Foundation, Ivan Kumi, speaks about his foundation and inspiring talent to keep the faith and run the race.
The 19-year old with the stage name Konfidential seeks to inspire confidence in young musicians struggling from the loss of their parents. His foundation, Yes To Smile, solicits public funds to cater and build young talents in orphanages across the country.
“My team and I brought up a project called Yes To Smile. We do it every year, and I am sure, this year, we will do it before or during December. We go to the orphanage homes and donate to them. I believe some of them have the talent. So when we go there, we try to push the talent, as well.
The last time we went to New Life Orphanage at Nungua. And some of the kids were rapping, and it was nice. Although I don’t have all the things I need, some of them don’t have it, at all. So we try to do our best with that.”
Kofidential has his eyes set on the goal and every other side that comes with the main meal.
“Being on Mentor means everything to me. I think it’s a great boost to my career. I am putting in my even if I don’t win. Because after some exposure the rest would be depending on me.
